We are so excited about our newest product: Individually wrapped toothpicks in brown paper!
Wrapped toothpicks are commonly used in restaurants where the wrapping is required for hygienic reasons.
Traditionally the toothpicks are wrapped in plastic. This is a terrible idea. Small pieces of plastic are tricky to isolate and set aside for recycling and because they are small and lightweight, they often land on the floor or are blown around by the wind. This way, they enter our water ways and ecosystems, becoming litter and an environmental threat to wildlife.
This brown paper wrapping biodegrades into natural components regardless of where its life ends. Hopefully it’s in the compost heap.
